The Department of Health and Human Services’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reorganizing several technology-related offices in order to create “an organizational structure that is customer centric and fosters modernization,” according to a statement.

The offices of the CIO, Chief Operating Officer, and the Director will be reorganized and the CDC will abolish the Information Technology Services Office, the Management Information Systems Office, and the Office of the CISO.

The Office of the CIO will also “delete in its entirety the title and the mission and function statements,” and will operate under the new mission statement:

“The mission of the Office of the Chief Information Officer is to administer the [CDC’s] information resources and information technology programs including collection, management, use, and disposition of data and information assets; development, acquisition, operation, maintenance, and retirement of information systems and information technologies; IT capital planning; enterprise architecture; information security; education, training, and workforce development in information and IT disciplines; development and oversight of information and IT policies, standards, and guidance; and administration of certain other general management functions and services for CDC.”
